Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not just been a captain but a true leader to the Indian Cricket Team. He has nurtured and taken youngsters in his umbrella to make them own the field like a champion. As Dhoni renounced captaincy, Indians were left heartbroken. Even Virat Kohli who is officially taking over the burden off Dhoni’s shoulders to captain the team expressed his feelings about the talismanic former skipper like a fanboy.
Kohli has played his entire international cricket under Dhoni’s captaincy since his ODI debut in Sri Lanka back in 2008. In his initial days both in ODIs and Tests, Kohli didn’t show consistency and his place wasn’t secure but Dhoni had immense faith in his talent and abilities.
“He (Dhoni) will always be the person, who guided me initially and gave me opportunities.”
“He gave me ample time and space to grow as a cricketer, saved me from getting dropped from the team many a times.”
“Obviously, these are massive shoes to fill. You think of MS Dhoni and the first word that comes to mind is captain!You don’t relate MS Dhoni in any other way. For me he is always going to be my captain.”
Kohli’s new assignment starts with the six-match limited-overs series against England starting in Pune on January 15. Wishing the old and new captain more luck and love!
